November is National Family Caregiver Month
Thank you partners and attendees!
Saturday, November 4, 2017 was FSL's third annual Family Caregiver Open House.
Family caregivers learned about resources available to them while also relaxing and taking time for themselves. Free Respite Care was provided by certified Direct Care Workers and loved ones participated in meaningful activities during the event, including a “Reminiscing” activity and take-home treats preparation.
Between presentations family caregivers were offered a free lunch, compliments of Enterprise Fleet Management. The lunch was followed by a healthy and delicious dessert prepared by our Chef Christina, which attendees learned how to make during her demo. Attendees also enjoyed FREE massages and acupressure sessions throughout the day.
Can I Bring My Loved One To This Event?
Yes! Complimentary on-site respite care will be provided! Your loved one can enjoy the day interacting with others, with caring supervision provided by our certified caregivers. Our goal is to give you a day to yourself and allow you to take a break.
Do I Have To Stay For The Whole Day?
No! This is an open house style of event meaning you can come and go as you please! We have scheduled interesting and relevant seminars throughout the day so that no matter what time you attend you can participate and walk away with useful information and some amazing community resources.
Do I Need To Pre-Register For This Event?

Is This Really A Free Event, Or Do I Need To Worry About Hidden Costs?
This is a completely free event! All of the resources, seminars and goodies have been donated by our Community Partners so that we are able to provide everything at no cost.
